You can see from the label,it is 187E with 5515.
I notice on the 'C' and 'E' models, the system info screen shows software version Y510 on the vendor photos.

In a previous reply it was indicated that the software revision with a letter in it is test version and not a release version.

Which seller has the full 5515 software? Anyone got one yet?

So far 5515+C210 is the best choice.

I think later the official version 187E will be 5515+C210.
As you can see from the label on the attached picture.

Guess no one is going to be able to convince any of the 187E sellers to part with the 5155/C210 firmware tarball then?

I dont think they will share the firmware,plus they want to sell more radios and earn more money.
Better to order the 5515+C210 187B,or wait for the 5515+C210 187E.
The 5515+C210 187E already leaked out,hope it will be on market soon.

In the automotive world, Automotive OEMs like VW require more than one source of the same hardware to prevent issues with supply chains and the like.

As best as I can tell the 187E is the same hardware produced by a different Automotive Tier 1 (In this case Visteon).

I can not get any discount from them or any benifit from them.I am just enthusiastic about this radio.
End of argument.

So is there really any point to getting the 187E if I already have the 187B with AA 5314 C180?

In my opinion,no point at all,it is a waste of money.
Even you want to waste extra money,you still get a 187E with bugs.What is the point ?
You can wait for newer version firmware,people will share the firmware sooner or later.

Yes praxidike you can wait c210 187B firmware maybe someone share . But if you dont want wait you can choice any latter with c210.

Happy buldog was share c210 and my radio was die
( i know he want to help us but its dengerous to try any firmware )
So i dont know how we trust if people share c210 again and who will try first ? Not me again ,
i already burn 1 motherboard )
thats why i buy 187E
Bro,you are a business man and do the advertisement for some seller to get discount for the radios.
This forum is for VW enthusiasts,not for advertisement or business man.
